TOP 10 INDIAN SPORT MOMENTS

OTHER THAN CRICKET

Over the years, many Indian sportsmen have gone to heights and achieved what only few or no one has achieved in the sporting world.

We are not only tough competitors, but even hold records that no other country or individual has been able to accomplish.

This does not go only for cricket, which has also seen a golden era and someone iconic players that have shined for a lot of years.

Here’s a list of top 10 sporting moments I have selected which in my opinion are just few of the greatest achievements of our sportsmen.

 

1. INDIAN FOOTBALL GOLDEN ERA

The current Indian football men’s team ranks at 141. Our average rank has been 133. But this wasn’t the case always. The Indian team was among the top 20 teams in the world after winning the Asian games in 1951 and 1962. It also qualified for the 1950 FIFA world cup but was disqualified because the team could not afford the required shoes.19350_heroa

 

2. BADMINTON HEROES

The All England Badminton Championships were won by Indians Prakash Padukone and P Gopichand in 1980 and 2001 respectively. This is one of the oldest and one of the most prestigious badminton tournament.

Saina Nehwal recently became the first Indian woman to be ranked number 1 in the world. She also won the bronze medal during the Olympics ’12.2012-French-Open-Saina-Nehwal-proceeds-to-Womens-Singles-quarter-finals-Badminton-News-197670-1-886383

 

3. INDIAN HOCKEY UNDER DHYAN CHAND

Led India to Olympic gold in 1928, 1932 and finally in 1936, where India beat Germany which was then under Hitler. Hitler was so impressed, that he offered Dhyan Chand a German citizenship. This was truly a time when India completely dominated the hockey world.dh635706-08-2013-01-21-24N

 

4. MARY KOM

She is a five-time World Amateur Boxing champion, and the only woman boxer to have won a medal in each one of the six world championships. She won the 2012 Olympics bronze medal after becoming the first Indian woman to qualify for the games. She has also been ranked as No. 4 in World Women’s Ranking Flyweight category. She became the first Indian woman boxer to get a Gold Medal in the Asian Games in 2014 in Incheon, South Korea.227

5. WEIGHTLIFTING

Karnam Malleswari became the first Indian woman Olympic medalist to win a bronze medal in weightlifting in the 69 kg category during the Sydney Olympics.maheshwari

 

6. ATHLETICS

P.T. Usha won four golds in the 1986 Seoul Asian games, and was awarded the trophy for Best Athlete in the world.P T Usha

 

7. MOTORSPORTS

After Narain Karthikeyan and Karun Chandok became F1 drivers, there’s an Indian F1 team and an Indian Grand Prix.kart_will_2007

 

8. CHESS

Vishwanathan Anand has won the FIDE World Title four times and even now remains one the best chess players of all time.viswanathan_anand_1367475871_540x540

 

9. BILLIARDS AND SNOOKER

Geet Sethi has won 6 world titles in billiards, and Pankaj Advani has won 8 world titles in both Billiards and Snooker.9e6e4a7c144f63c759938e6dea17-grande

 

10. INDIAN TENNIS

We know a lot about Mahesh Bhupathi, Leander Paes, Sania Mirza and Somdev Devvarman, but only some of us know about Ramanathan Krishnan who was ranked World No.3 and reached the semi-finals of Wimbledon in 1960, 61. He defeated the great Roy Emerson.08_MP_RAMESH_1_114453g
